This project was inspired by an aspect of my life that I don’t talk about much. It has to do with spiritual beliefs that I hold more in wonder than in practice. I love to listen to music, and I love to find ways to visualize it. I began to think that visualizations in a way aim to represent not only the music, but also the tone, and to some extent the personality of the song itself. Actual beliefs aside, I thought it was a cool concept so i approached this project with that aspect in mind. I asked my classmates to draw their hands on a black piece of cardboard, in whichever way they wanted. That would represent their aura. The space I created with the art project projected on two screens was intentionally disturbing at first and then chill by the end. This video also shows off how I use coding to extract visual information directly from the music itself.

I do not own the song used in this video, and I do not make money from this.
